"Thank you for all the support these past weeks during my quarantine. I look forward to getting back to training shortly in order to be ready for the US hardcourt swing."

Dimitrov was one of several athletes to test positive due to the controversial Adria Tour.

He returned home to Monaco after feeling unwell during a match, testing positive on arrival, before the tour was ultimately cancelled while Borna Coric, Viktor Troicki and Novak Djokovic also tested positive.
